The Carpenters - Christmas song
Tekst en muziek: Mel Tormé en Robert Wells
(1978)






All through the year we’ve waited
Waited through spring and fall
To hear silver bells ringing
See winter time bringing
The happiest season of all



Chestnuts roasting on an open fire
Jackfrost nippin’ at your nose
Yuletide carols being sung by a choir
And folks dressed up like Eskimos



Everybody knows, a turkey and some mistletoe
Will help to make the season bright
Tiny tots with their eyes all a glow
Will find it hard to sleep tonight



They know that Santa’s on his way
He’s loaded lots of toys and goodies on his sleigh
And every mother’s child is gonna spy
To see if reindeer really know how to fly



And so I’m offering this simple phrase
To kids from one to ninety-two
Although it’s been said
Many times, many ways
Merry Christmas to you



They know that Santa’s on his way
He’s loaded lots of toys and goodies on his sleigh
And every mother’s child is gonna spy
To see if reindeer really know how to fly



And so I’m offering this simple phrase
To kids from one to ninety-two
Although it’s been said
Many times, many ways
Merry Christmas to you
